, just really during the obama administration. the message that the u.s. has to send out has to be clear but what kind of, what kind of stick do we have to go with our words? >> well i think we've got to convince china and i concede it is an arduous task, but i think we have to convince china their own security long term depends on ending the north korea's nuclear weapons program. china could do that alone if it wanted to. it supplies 90% of the north korea's energy and substantial amounts of food to keep the north korean population there instead in china. but china has not been willing to do that because it fears that the regime would collapse and the peninsula would reunify. that's what we need to convince china long term it is in their interests. if north korea's nuclear weapons program goes on other countries in the region, japan, south korea, taiwan and others are themselves going to look whether they want nuclear weapons which would obviously make the entire region much more unstable. jon: and for those who wondered whether kim jong-un had staying power as leader of north korea, he
